This calendar is inspired and informed by the life’s work of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme and Mary Evelyn Tucker, without which the ideas expressed in The Great Journey Calendar would not be possible. Heartfelt gratitude goes to these three pioneers, whose work can be explored at www.journeyoftheuniverse.org.
About this Calendar
“I opened this year’s calendar Christmas morning and a friend and I read every page out loud. It’s so fantastic and important. I love the words that you so carefully and lovingly selected. The photos grace each insight.
At this time when people want to develop the conscience of the world, your calendar goes so deeply into the transformative powers of the Universe, that it is of inestimable value in promoting peace. What a gift to the world.”
Rev. Sarah Pirtle, MEd. Director, Discovery Center for Peacebuilding
The Great Journey Calendar combines contemporary science with heartfelt passion. It is the inspiration of Peter Adair, with graphic design by Julia Jandrisits. The calendar was entirely conceived, written, designed and printed in Vermont. Twelve stunning images illustrate Adair’s evocative prose, as the story unfolds one month at a time. 12” x 12” glossy format opening to 12” x 24”.
This beautiful calendar celebrates the story of our connection to an unfolding universe. Each month portrays an essential stage of the astonishing grandeur and creativity of our shared history.
Through the revelations of science we learn that each human life is the magnificent individual expression of a vast cosmic journey.
